In Psalm 89, King David glorifies the Lord God, who created the north and the south and said that Tabor and Hermon rejoice in His name ... Being here allows us to understand this Word. Even nature seems to express joy towards God the Creator. A special place ...

The Gospel does not mention the name of the Holy Mountain on which the transfiguration of Jesus took place, but a third-century tradition cites the Mount Tabor as the place where Jesus allowed Peter, James and John to see a ray of His heavenly glory.

The Transfiguration of Jesus is directly related to the season of Lent.

"The transfiguration takes place after the first announcement of the Passion of Jesus, for this reason we feel that Mount Tabor is a new experience of Easter. It is interesting that the Eastern Churches call the transfiguration 'Summer Easter'. Consequently, in order to get to the Passover of Jesus Christ, we must go through this 'Summer Easter' which is our life, day after day."

“The presence of Jesus deeply ties this place to the season of Lent. Here, He invites us to retreat with him and pray; thus Lent means retreat ... The Church prepares for Easter. Then, a time dedicated to prayer and above all, the presence of Jesus."

Mount Tabor is located more than 400 meters above the plain and almost 600 meters above sea level. As the disciples told him, it is good to be here ... but we need to get off the mountain and go back to reality.

"We cannot dwell in this experience, because our life is not just about this: we are called to be the reflection of what we live here, the reflection of prayer, the reflection of the transfiguration of our lives which is not easy to obtain, but we are called, day after day (not only during Lent) to achieve this transformation and transfiguration of our lives.”

"Like the apostles, like Peter, John and James, we must always get off the mountain and go back to our daily life ... and right there, prove to others that Jesus is present in our lives, that Jesus is alive, but we need to do it with a transfigured life, a new life.”
